Mexican immigration to the United States increased tremendously from 1900-
1925 as factors such as the Mexican Revolution and the recruitment of Mexican
laborers by American industry drew Mexicans north. A significant number of Mexicans
settled in Dallas and in the face of Anglo discrimination and segregation in the
workplace, public institutions, and housing, these immigrants forged a community in the
city rooted in their Mexican identity and traditions. This research, based heavily on data
from the 1900, 1910, and 1920 census enumerations for Dallas and on articles from
Dallas Morning News, highlights the agency of the Mexican population - men and
women - in Dallas in the first three decades of the twentieth century.
